We had such an amazing week at The Hay Loft. We received the warmest welcome and the goodies on arrival were such a lovely touch. Owners were extremely friendly and always happy to help. We fully intend on visiting again and would recommend anyone to stay there if they wish to have a relaxing holiday with beautiful scenery.

I honestly can't recommend this place high enough. The cottage was immaculate, well equipped and close to every thing we wanted to see. The hosts were lovely and welcoming and couldn't do enough to make our stay a great one. Of all the cottages we have stayed in this was by far the best.

We had such a lovely time at the Hayloft, just wish it was longer. Really friendly people and a wonderful location just at the edge of the forest. Could not have asked to say at a nicer place.

We had a lovely warm welcome from Lindie the host, and she explained where the shops were and what we could expect to find in the cottage. We found cupcakes, cookies, beer, wine, milk and a gift for our baby boy. The cottage was lovely and homely. Very easy to book and relevant information sent.

Fantastic warm welcome from Lindi the owner. Within minutes of walking into the Cottage both my wife and I had decided that we would be returning for another holiday. Cannot fault anything! Easy initial reservation online and I have already recommended to several friends and work colleagues.
